We have integrated our Music and Art classes for this month.
(1) For our first lesson we designed our own music album/ CD cover.
(2) Our second lesson was tracing and cutting out musical notes from coloured paper, including the treble clef. Then the pupils had to decide on whether they wanted to go with a haphazard design or a planned design. The finished pieces of work are amazing.
(3) For our third lesson, we listened to the great works of John Williams. An American whose very successful career is spanning over 60 years. He is a composer, conductor and a pianist. He has composed some of the most popular and recognizable pieces of music in film history, for example “Jaws”, “Star Wars series”, “Superman”, “ET”, Jurassic Park”, Harry Potter films” etc the pupils them had to design a picture of one of his films.
(4) Our fourth lesson at the beginning of next month will involve the pupils making their own percussion instruments.
